When Sparrows Fall is Meg Moseley's debut novel and I can only say I can not wait to read more from her in the future. This is a book I would re read and recommend to others, it just that good.
In this story we meet Miranda Hanford who is a widow and mother to six children. She is a member of a small conservative church in Georgia where she is considered the 'trouble maker'. When her pastor sees the need to move the entire congregation to another town Miranda sees this as an opportunity to leave the church and restart her life. The only catch to this is the pastor is trying all he can to not allow her to leave. He knows secrets of Miranda that has kept her fearful of him and makes it harder for her to leave.
Everything begins to change when she falls and her estranged brother-in-law comes to help out and take care of her children. It is then when Miranda starts to be able to sort out her life and take charge. Will Miranda be able to leave the oppressive life she has been living? Will she learn what truly being a christian means?
